travel photography of Brazil today and in Olympic Year
The eyes of the world will focus on Brazil again this summer as the Olympic Games open in Rio de
Janeiro this August. In this specially selected collection of images from Brazil, you’ll discover
Brazil beyond Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana Beach, Sugarloaf Mountain, and Christ on Mt Corcovado.
The Brazilian people are well-known for their ready smiles and an infectious joie de vivre;
for a world outlook perhaps encapsulated by the late great futurist architect Oscar Niemeyer who
eschewed straight lines and right angles when he said “I am not attracted to straight angles or to
the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. I am attracted to free-flowing, sensual
curves. The curves that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuousness of its rivers,
in the waves of the ocean, and on the body of the beloved woman. Curves make up the entire Universe,
the curved Universe of Einstein”. Maybe those sentiments find expression in the sexy rhythmic moves
of samba and athletic Capoeira.
Come and see all 4Corners’ images of Brazil
, including Oscar Niemeyer’s futurist architecture, some of Brazil’s wide rivers and its impenetrable wild places, home to endangered wildlife and cultures and to a fabulously diverse cultural heritage.
